The global eco-friendly bitumen market size reached US$ 121.52 Million in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 152.17 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.60% during 2023-2028. The increasing environmental awareness regarding the usage of traditional petroleum-based products, an enhanced focus on sustainability and the rising prices of petroleum-based bitumen represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Bitumen is a highly viscous, sticky, and black material that is commonly used in asphalt and road construction as a binding agent. Eco-friendly bitumen is a type of bitumen that is manufactured using environmentally friendly processes and has a reduced impact on the environment compared to traditional bitumen. This type of bitumen is typically produced using recycled materials, such as waste plastics and used tires. When compared to conventional bitumen, eco-friendly bitumen has lower carbon emissions, and similar performance characteristics, making it an effective substitute to its traditional counterpart. The use of recycled materials in the production of eco-friendly bitumen reduces the amount of waste that is sent to landfills. Additionally, lower carbon emissions help reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry. As a result, eco-friendly bitumen is extensively used as binder in asphalt, construction and roofing, and waterproofing applications across the construction industry.
Eco-Friendly Bitumen Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the growing environmental concerns regarding the usage of traditional petroleum-based products. This can be attributed to the rapid depletion of fossil fuels, along with rising levels of pollution. Also, the rising stringency in government regulations and policies aimed at reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable development practices is providing an impetus to the market. In line with this, the rapid product utilization in numerous road construction projects, particularly in developed countries, with an enhanced focus on sustainability is creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Additionally, considerable rise in construction and infrastructure development activities, such as the expansion of green buildings and smart cities, is driving demand for eco-friendly bitumen. The market is further driven by the rising adoption of eco-friendly bitumen in the construction of energy storage systems, including batteries and supercapacitors. Moreover, the increasing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) is driving the need for eco-friendly materials in the construction of EV charging stations. Apart from this, augmenting investments by public and private agencies in research and development (R&D) activities focusing on the production of superior eco-friendly bitumen variants are propelling the market. In addition to this, the rising prices of petroleum-based bitumen is leading to a higher uptake of more affordable eco-friendly bitumen in numerous industrial applications. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid urbanization and industrialization, inflating disposable income levels, and strategic collaborations and partnerships among key players.
